Problems / Re: Reverse Parking sensor problem
« on: August 17, 2018, 09:58:02 AM »
Mine are as old as the car (16years) never had a problem.
I too have a rev camera,but tend to rely on the bleepers, they seem to get through the deafness problem, must be to do with their frequency.
Will wait till stethoscope arrives and investigate further.
As an aside, on Monday  got home from a 75 mile trip to a wedding in Congleton and pulled into the drive and the car dumped all its engine coolant on the drive, found it's a hose to the interior rads at back of engine from the expansion tank, it had rubbed through on the cyl head. really lucky.
A right bugger to get to,so it is now off and new hose ordered, I'm going to check and spirap all the hoses in that vicinity to negate any further problems.

I agree with Alan and look on Pelican parts for the ''HOW TO'', an American site ,but very good, remember they are LHD though.

Thanks for all the replies,
1st thing ordered a stethoscope from Amazon(I am deaf in one ear and have to have a hearing aid for the other  ear ) , can be handy sometimes when ''her indoors'' is going on a bit.
Will let you know how we go.

Problems / Reverse Parking sensor problem
« on: August 16, 2018, 10:02:58 AM »
I have a problem with my reverse parking sensors, get the continuous beep when engaging reverse which cuts out after a few seconds, exactly as described is the handbook as a fault, any ideas where to go next ?
My front sensors are not working either.
I have some spare sensors I could try, do I have to remove the bumper to do swops ?

If you do a throttle reset, you wipe out the info the car has remembered about your driving habits.
It will relearn and remember how YOU drive.

I had a similar problem, kept on stalling and running rough about 10 years ago, turned out that some idiot at the garage had refitted it back to front.
It will fit either way round,but work efficiently only if correct way round, might be worth turning it around and trying.

Don't forget you can either buy an lpg converted or have it converted (about £2k) this will significantly improve your fuel consumption costs (lpg about 65ppl) .
My 4.4 lpg does equiv of 30-35 mpg.
look up lpg posts on here.

If kkx5 says it is the transfer box then that is what it is.
We are lucky enough to have a resident " expert'' on the forum, I would trust what he says.
